ACT! Show Fields List

Act! Version 22.1.212.0, Update 4

Word Version 2002 (Build 12527.21236 Click-to-Run)

 

I can't get the Show Fields List dialog to appear when editing a ACT! template in Word

 

I've found a few references to this here in this Community, but they are all from 2009 or earlier. I did go through the items in https://help.act.com/hc/en-us/articles/360024409593-Act-Menu-Options-are-Missing-or-Unresponsive-in-... with no effect. Same with http://act4advisors.com/docs/actmailmergeissue.html. 

 

Suggestions?

Most probably Word has disabled or inactivated the ACT!-Addin. Go to the addins dialogue in Word and re-enable it.

Checking for the Add-In was one of the first things I checked. It is included in the pages I referenced. The only Act! addin listed in Word is the "Act! Documents Tab Add-in". It was inactive when I looked earlier. I checked the box and restarted word. Upon restart, the box is blank again. I repeated that several time. I did notice that the Location field on the add-in page was blank for that add-in.

Check if you are running Office 64bit. If you are using Office 64bit then the Act addin wont work. This will be sorted with the next version of Act.

Yes, I am running 64-bit. But I have been running 64-bit for years and it was working until recently.

You may also have done this but just asking -

 

When you look at the add-ins did you change the option of what to look for from Com add-ins to Disabled Items to see if it shows there. If it does you will need to add it back as enabled there first.

Yes, I checked the Disabled category.
